Just went through this. Twice. Ignition Control Unit, I'll bet. Front driver side fender. Bought a Hueco unit lasted about a year, then died.
Just bought Programa remanufactured Bosche for $80.
Cranked right up.
Good luck.

If you're dumping fuel down the intake and it isn't starting, you don't have a fuel problem, you have an ignition problem.

Start by checking your spark and seeing if you actually have any. When was the last time the cap and rotor were replaced on the distributor? I'll echo the above suggestion regarding the EZL, the one in my SL failed outright.
